Yes I intend to get up early and watch it
I am not tired of the media coverage. Not one bit. What I am tired of is people either asking me if I was going to get up early and watch the wedding in a way that implied they were trying to get me to admit to something mildly embarrassing (one co worker even equated it with reading trashy romance novels) or just loudly proclaiming that they can't understand why anyone would do such a thing. I consider it an important event and I am going to watch it live. Since I am usually awakened at that hour by a child anyway, it is even most convenient for me to watch it live.

I am going around and questioning the choices of those of you who would rather sleep in, nor do I go around suggesting that those of you who are disinterested are being somewhat shallow. I am not ashamed or embarrassed by my choice to do so. I will not be bullied or badgered into feeling that way just because some other people think all sensible people should feel as they do on the matter.

(And by the way, I do not read romance novels or supermarket tabloids.)

Three cheers for our future monarch and his bride!

(Well, *my* future monarch.)

Oh, Charles, monarchy is so... last millenium. We're living in the New World! Let it go! ;)

We're in the middle of an election up here, and all the politicians running just make monarchy seem more appealing! Anything to keep their faces off our money. (And their hands... but I'm afraid that's too much to ask. :-P )

I'm a firm believer in not putting people's faces on money until they've been dead at least 50 years. Ditto naming airports after them.

Renaming Montreal's Dorval airport after Trudeau took about a week after his demise. If that.

I admit, I was thinking of Reagan National, where they didn't even wait until he was dead.

If I were into celebrity weddings, I'd DVR it rather than wake up at 4am on a workday.

Sadly the highlights reel misses most of the stuff I would actually want to see / hear (most of the choral music except for I Was Glad, for example). But there's a goodly selection of people getting in and out of cars and driving around.
